Trendscout Future of Work, Life and Learn at Vitra
Raphael Gielgen is one of these colleagues. His irrepressible curiosity, restless search for explanation and desire to turn everything upside down make him uncomfortable at times - and when he reappears in the office after a long journey, he talks about things that sound more like virtual utopia than lived reality. He visits more than 100 companies a year, the world is his workplace, the future is his field of research. His task is to travel the world and meet the protagonists of a new era. He documents the findings and experiences on a "panorama" - a map of the trends and patterns of a new world.
